(2) Create Apache Virtual Hosts for each web site plus one extra.

(3) Assuming the IP address is and that IP address has a host

<VirtualHost dummy.domain.com:80>
    DocumentRoot /prod/web/domains/dummy/
    CustomLog ............
    ErrorLog  ...........
    HostnameLookups Off

<Directory /prod/web/domains/dummy/>
    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Methods "GET" 
    Order Deny,Allow
    Allow from all

    RedirectMatch permanent ^/(.*)$
